Nate R. says, "“Invigorating”! That’s one of the many ways to describe every dance lesson that I’ve had the pleasure to experience with Nicole Wooding as my instructor. I was relatively new to Swing dancing and completely new to Salsa when I began my lessons at Chassé & Sway. After my first ten lessons, coupled with practice sessions at home, I’m now able to lead my partner through a variety of turns and spins. And not only during studio sessions, but also with a complete sense of confidence while dancing to live music at public venues!! And I have Nicole, my inspirational instructor to thank for this new form of ‘release’ that feels like a gift! Due to her passion and appetite for this art form, Nicole’s energy is nothing shy of contagious! And before you know it, you’ll be eager to learn more after each session reaches its conclusion. And while some of the things that you attempt to perform won’t register right away, Nicole always has a trick up her sleeve to help you to transform a struggle with a step, or a turn, into a maneuver that will become second-nature to you! So if you’ve ever wanted to learn how to dance, trust someone who apparently does this will zeal every day; someone exactly like Nicole – a motivational instructor who has a great way of seasoning every lesson with an endless amount of patience, a bottomless supply of encouragement and the ability to bridge the gap between where you are now and the exhilarating platform that’s offered through the art of dancing!! Thank You, Nicole!!!" Read more

Your ballet questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much are ballet classes?

Ballet classes cost $60 to $200+ per month, depending on the studio location, reputation, and the number of classes per week. One class per week typically costs $60 to $70 per month, while the monthly rate for an unlimited class pass is $150 to $250. At many studios, you'll also pay a $25 to $50 non-refundable registration fee.

  • Ballet studios often offer the first class for free to help you decide if you want to register for a full season.
  • Some ballet studios offer a discount when paying in full for the entire season or when registering siblings or more than one child.
  • Private ballet classes cost $50 to $85 per hour on average.

What is ballet?

Classical ballet is a theatrical form of dance using slow, formal body movement techniques, music, and often scenery to tell a story or express a concept or emotion. Contemporary ballet dancing combines classical ballet with ethnic, jazz, and modern dance styles, incorporating faster movements, floor work, and often bare feet instead of ballet shoes.

How long is a ballet class?

While class lengths vary by dance studio, traditional ballet classes typically last 90 minutes, with the first 30 to 45 minutes spent at the barre to warm up the body and the second part of the class focusing on center work.

At what age can you start ballet classes?

Formal ballet classes typically start around age 7 or 8, but many studios offer "pre-ballet" classes for ages 4 to 6, combining games with ballet techniques and steps to create a fun class that helps the child learn some basics while also developing their ability to working together in a group class setting. Some dance studios even offer "baby ballet" or "mommy and me" classes for children as young as 2 or 3 years old.

Can adults take ballet classes?

Yes! You can start taking ballet classes at any age. Most studios offer ballet classes for teens and adults. Learning ballet as an adult offers many benefits, such as developing good posture, physical coordination, mental focus, mental and physical flexibility, self-confidence, and social skills.

What should you wear to a ballet class?

Most ballet studios recommend wearing flexible fabric that hugs tight to the body so your movement is not restricted, and the teacher can clearly see the moves you are making. Traditional ballet studios often require a black leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet slippers for female attire and black tights, dance pants, or dance shorts with a fitted white T-shirt and black ballet shoes for males. Every dance studio has its own guidelines for dance class attire, so be sure to confirm the clothing requirements with your ballet studio before your first class.

How do I choose the best ballet class?

When searching for ballet classes near you, be sure to:

  • Look for a licensed and insured ballet studio that has been in business for 5+ years.
  • Check out their reviews on Lessons.com and Google.
  • Review their website for scheduling information and photos or videos.
  • Read all contract terms before signing.

What questions should I ask when searching for ballet classes near me?

Consider asking the following questions to help you choose a ballet studio:

  • Do you offer classes for an absolute beginner?
  • What is your class schedule?
  • Do I need to register?
  • Do you offer drop-in classes?
  • Can I join a class that has already started?
  • What is your cancellation policy?
  • Do you have any package deals or new student offers?
  • Do you offer private lessons?
  • What forms of payment do you take?
  • Do I need to pay in advance?
  • What type of clothing should I wear to class?
  • What shoes should I wear?
  • Will there be a recital?
